I am not really sure myself. Dispite the fact that i have installed REd Hat 7 several times on my schools POS computers, I just installed FC1 on my personal Dell 8200. What you may want to do is go to the dell website and look up all the moniter information and run xconfig86(that is if you are that far into the setup)

Try This

From the Fedora website:

'Certain hardware configurations (particularly those with LCD displays) may experience problems while starting the Fedora Core installation program. In these instances, restart the installation, and add the "nofb" option to the boot command line.'
